In order to increase the population of cattle in Indonesia, the country’s Ministry of Agriculture, under its Special Effort of Mandatory Pregnant Cows (Upsus Siwab), this year will prepare 4 million cattle for acceptors – of this figure, 3 million heads are targeted to be pregnant.

For this program, the ministry through its agencies in different regions will intensify checking & monitoring of cattle reproductive problems, artificial insemination services, control of productive heifers and cows, and assure the supply of forage and concentrates. As another effort to increase the cattle population, the ministry has also obliged cattle importers to import one breeding cattle for every five imported feeder cattle.
